cramped like a 14 year old girl lovin' on some Justin Bieber...
Baskets-- at the very least there are baskets here. Although, I think the baskets are wasted. This would work better as a pole course as this course could easily be played with a beach frisbee (perhaps this is the intent)
Routing/Nav-- not too terrible, it's an out and back course1-5 play to and along the beach, 6 and 7 play back. 8 and 9 are a bit confusing but flow easily.
ugh, where to start
Teesigns- where there are teesigns, they aren't tremendously helpful as to what basket you are throwing to. it's awful to see five baskets when you throw and not know exactly which one to throw at. Baskets are NOT marked with numbers.
Aesthetic-- this park is a beautiful little lakeside park but along with that there are (when weather is nicer I'm sure) a lot of other things that go on in this park. When I was there it was 39degrees and windy and no one was around so it was fine. I would imagine this course is rediculously dangerous when busy.
Teepads- Dirt, rutted and deep. there are kick strips in places but not on all tees. This adds to the confusion of which basket to throw to.
Variety & Risk v Reward-- not a ton of variety here, the holes are short and the lanes are tight but slow your game and you're fine. many many ace runs here.
Other Thoughts: I tried to make a map of this place but the google earth image was so poor it wasn't possible. but if someone can post one it may help.

A waste of 9 perfectly good baskets.
Pros: This course is an old style pitch-n-putt course with newly installed Chainstar baskets. Distances make this course a beginner's dream, but they should have just left it a pole-hole course.
Cons: This nine hole course is packed into a very small, triangular-shaped area, surrounded by one of Cadillac's "main drags" on one side, a parking lot on another, and a public (and very busy) beach and playground on the third. It's also bisected by the bike/hike/skate path that loops around Lake Cadillac. On almost every hole you risk either hitting a person, car, or building, or flipping your disc into the road, the parking lot, or the lake.
Vandalism has robbed more than half of the tees of any signage, so making your way around (even on this short nine) can be a frustration at times.
Other Thoughts: When originally installed, this was probably a great course. Even now, it's a decent and somewhat challenging warm-up or family course; however, growth and increasing utilization of the park and beach area means it's now installed in a really bad place. It saw minimal use as a pole-hole course, but the newly installed baskets have greatly increased it's visibility and traffic.
Personally, I think installing baskets here was not only silly, but also dangerous.....I'm afraid to throw anything more than a putter here and I can't believe no one has been seriously hurt yet.
Take your kids here, let them throw, toss your putter for a few, then head across the street or downtown to the Diggins hill course for REAL discin'. Seriously.
Full facilities and concession stand available during the main tourist season. Picnic areas, playground, beach, and free boat launch all on the property.
